I found a simple doily pattern on the web, I knit it up and then unraveled it. I knit in a circle like a mandala. THe knitting was a meditation. This is good practice of the Buddhist concept of impermanence.
"Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, staved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions . . . for safety on the streets . . . for child care, for social welfare . . . for rape crisis centers, women's refuges, reforms in the laws. If someone says 'Oh, I'm not a feminist,' I ask 'Why? What's your problem?'" -- Dale Spender, For the Record: The Making and Meaning of Feminist Knowledge.
